Product description

Review

‘His exhilarating, sometimes burlesque narrative introduces several fascinating characters…Ethiopia provides the questing spirit, as does this thrilling and intelligent book.’ Daily Telegraph

‘He rises above the physical trail to produce short intense vignettes that transport us to a world that few of us will ever see…As both Traveller and Scribe, the best travel writers, like Marsden, hammer out a chain between two worlds: the foreign and the familiar, the present and historical, the journey physical and interior, the road hard travelled and the story well told.’ Sunday Times

About the Author

Philip Marsden is the author of ‘A Far Country: Travels in Ethiopia’, ‘The Crossing Place: Among the Armenians’ (which won the Somerset Maugham Award), ‘The Bronski House: A Return to the Borderlands’ and ‘The Spirit Wrestlers: A Russian Journey’ (Winner of the Thomas Cook Travel Book of the Year Award). He is the editor of The Spectator Book of Travel Writing and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His work has been translated into ten languages.
